Scams and scammers using these names: Steve or Kyle, 800-859-9394, Global Timeshare Sales
"he has a buyer for your timeshare"
Are you looking to sell your timeshare? Or you don't even have a timeshare, but received a call from "Steve or Kyle" claiming to be from Global Timeshare Sales at 800-859-9394? Note that reports from consumers claim that he says they has a buyer for your timeshare, but oddly, you have to pay him his commission and fees, upfront! Scam alert! That's a clue to a scam right there! These callers may not even be employees of Global Timeshare - which may or may not be legitimate. The point is: don't trust any unsolicited phone calls or emails you receive about selling a timeshare, house, etc.
I received a call from a Steve who said he represented Global Timeshare Sales. He said that he had a buyer for my timeshare. Since I have never spoken to anyone at that company, I was suspicious to begin with, but played along to see what the scam was. After they "sold" my timeshare for a "great profit", the manager, Kyle Miller called and explained how I would be receiving all the closing papers, etc. First I would need to use my credit card and pay them $1,950. Since I wasn't willing to do that, I figured they could just take that out of the sale, he would just have to move on to the next property. The contact phone # is 1-800-859-9394 ext. 103 for Kyle, ext. 114 for Steve. The number that showed up on my caller ID was 407-581-3756. Steve said they were located in Orlando, FL. I looked up Global Timeshare Sales on Google and found the address in Kissimmee, FL but the number given had been disconnected; it was a 407 area code. I found a website for Global Timeshare Sales and it said it was located in Brockton, MA.
I would hate to think these guys would get anyone to pay. I'm sure that if they did, something would happen and the "buyer would back out or something".
A quick search in Google shows this is a common scam with many complaints. They also use these names:
Other reports say they claim this address:
